Band of Brothers

Replacements - S1-E4

Other mistake: When Heffron is taking his throw at darts, he states that he needs a "double seven". When he takes the throw, the dart goes into the treble eight (an earlier close-up confirms that the board has the standard Gamlin configuration), yet, from the reaction he gets, he's made the throw he was going for.

Points - S1-E10

Other mistake: During the scene when the soldier who shot Sergeant Grant on the head was captured, Captain Speirs with a drawn M1911 pistol (hammer not cocked) is seen entering the building. In the interrogation room, it appeared that Capt. Speirs pulled back the slide of his pistol (this is after hitting the face of the captured soldier with his pistol). Speirs then aimed to shoot the captured soldier's head. Sergeant Perconte slowly stepped back (fearing he might be in the line of fire). Clearly it can be seen that the hammer is still not cocked. Then a sound of what appears to be a clicking (or unclicking) of the pistol's safety by Speirs.

Crossroads - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: When Easy is paddling across the river to aid the British soldiers, there is a shot where the person closest to the camera (Bull Randleman) appears to be rowing, but there is nothing in his hands.

Guarnere: Jesus Christ, we gotta do all this with a C.O. who has his head so far up his fuckin' ass, that lump in his throat is his goddamn nose.

Crossroads - S1-E5

Trivia: In the scene where the Red Devils toast the 101st Airborne, when the camera shows the assembled soldiers you'll see Tom Hanks as one of the Red Devils in a beret at the back left (5 or 6 men in) with his right hand on his hip. His head moves forwards to become obscured behind another soldier. (00:30:30)

Crossroads - S1-E5

Question: How exactly do the M1 Garands work? I noticed that after the clip is emptied a metal type plate comes out the top of the rifle, what is that?

Answer: That actually is the clip. It is loaded into the top of the rifle, and is ejected with the last round. See http://www.wwiitech.net/main/usa/weapons/m1/.
